Scott was born and raised in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, and graduated from St. Stanislaus High School in 1998. In 2001, Scott was hired as a police officer for the Gulfport Police Department and worked full-time while he completed his B.A. in Criminal Justice at the University of Southern Mississippi.

He later transferred to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) as a Special Agent in the Phoenix Field Division. In 2008, Scott left government service and directed security operations in the private sector, facilitating the international transfer of high-value assets.
Scott returned to public service in 2009 with the East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office, where he worked in various positions, including the Uniform Patrol Division, the Community Policing Unit, the Special Community Anti-Crime Team, and the Narcotics Division.
